Description Aleksander Adamowski 2007-07-26 15:44:20 UTC
Description of problem:

The redhat build configuration of mailman specifies a predefined list of groups
mail spoolers typically run as (mail, postfix, mailman, nobody, daemon). The
list doesn't contain the group "courier", which is typically used by Courier MTA

Please, add courier to this list - I can see no harm in this and making Mailman
work with courier won't  require a rebuild of RPM.

Sample patch attached.

I failed to find the Courier package in the RHEL package collection. I don't see
much reason in adding references to an usupported software to the spec file. If
someone installs Courier, he can reconfigure Mailman.
